Take one look at Mike Hunter’s photography and try to tell me his miniatures don’t look insanely real. Well, you’d be half right. Hunter hasn’t mastered the skill of creating life-like miniatures, he has mastered the skill of capturing a real-life place and creating the illusion that it is a miniature. I’ll let you take a minute to re-read that sentence. Was that the sound of your mind exploding?
What you are looking at is a real place. Those “figurines” are actually actors dressed as toy soldiers (complete with fake stands their feet). Hunter utilizes a miniaturizing technique called “tilt shift photography” and selects locations based on their “already artificial quality”.
